2020 was a uniquely challenging year for women.

When we reflect on the past year, we are proud to know that, while the pandemic has disproportionately impacted women, women are also a key part of our recovery. Because when women work together, incredible things happen.

In the last year, your support has changed the lives of thousands of women in our community for the better. Thanks to you, a difficult year was packed with inspiring, transformational stories from women in our community.

We invite you to explore our 2020 Annual Report and see what your continued support of the WNY Women’s Foundation makes possible.

Thank you for your continued partnership as we work to advance gender equity in Western New York.
